There are few things as limiting or as discouraging as chronic back pain. It hinders our ability to work, relax, or be the person we want to be. While there are many treatment options available, it’s almost always best to begin with, a qualified chiropractor. Dr. Bashar Salame and the team at Health First Chiropractic in the heart of Detroit, MI, can help.

Our priority is pain relief so you can begin functioning fully again. The second is working together to address underlying causes and promote long-term health. Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong. Too often, we’re tempted to merely mask the symptoms. Our chiropractor in Detroit would rather work with you to eliminate the problem.

Why Spinal Decompression?

Your nervous system runs through your spine to almost every part of your body. When that system is damaged or gets out of alignment due to injury, accidents, posture, or other stresses, the natural function of the network is impaired.

For example, herniated discs are common sources of severe back pain. These cushions rest between your vertebrae and help absorb the shocks of normal movement. When one is damaged or pushed out of place, movement can become limited and you may feel a stabbing or burning sensation. Ignoring this or masking the pain allows the damage to become increasingly severe and makes treatment progressively more difficult. Don’t ignore your body’s warning signs.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Decompression is a method used by our chiropractor to gently stretch your spine, reducing pressure on discs and other damaged areas. This makes it easier for your body to circulate oxygen, water, and other fluids which help your system heal itself. The most common method of spinal decompression involves a harness fitted on over your clothing. You recline on a computer-controlled table that our chiropractor controls. Each session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes.

Multiple sessions are usually required for our patients to experience the full benefits of spinal decompression. Decompression therapy is sometimes combined with the use of electrical stimulation, heat or cold therapy, or other muscle stimulation to promote rapid healing.
